3 (1)It was so nice that I didn’t have to do any food preparation for this party.

Deb hired Sabrina, George, and Eileen Heller who must have been quite busy the past few days.

3 (2)Sabrina is dating our grandson Nathan and wants to get into catering.

George and Eileen are her parents.

3 (22)You can tell that reaching fifty has really matured Roy. 🙂

However, he does have another week to mature. His birthday is actually July 7.

3 (23)Four little “techies.”

3 (25)We sang happy birthday to Jesse first – as this was his actual birthday.

Roy thought that is why he was coming to our house – for Jesse’s birthday party.

3 (26)Nathan used the torch to light candles.

3 (27)Jesse was quite pleased to have a lot of attention on his birthday.

  1. Happy birthday to Jesse and to Roy — Jesse has a whole lifetime ahead of him, and Roy maybe a half lifetime — but Roy has plenty of time to grow up! 50 is a wonderful birthday — time to reflect on what you’ve accomplished, and time to plan the rest of your life. It looks like a wonderful party for both “birthday boys!”
